In either case, in regards to Timmins suggesting he had too much. Source? I haven't seen any mention of that.

Also, even if Bergevin holds timmins in high regard, I don't see how this isn't overkill anyway. I mean, if I ever wanted to be promoted in a company and they tell me "look, we reduced your roles and not only that, we put 3-4 other guys between you and your goal one day...but I REALLY like your work". Obviously, if Timmins suggested he had too much work then I can't say much, but it's the first time I hear of this.
Look at Detroits hockey operations and the success they have had and you will see why expansion and diversification is critically important.
